Bungou Stray Dogs 8th Anniversary Project to Launch in April

Being one of the top seinen anime series in Japan, Bungou Stray Dogs just finished its fifth season in the summer of last year. It is surreal how Kafka Asagiri’s work maintains the same quality over five-season TV anime that span eight years.

But, seeing that this famous anime has caught up with the manga, we can expect the next season will have to wait for several years. However, it doesn’t mean the series will stop promoting the work. 

In reality, Kadokawa just announced eight special projects to commemorate the eighth anniversary of the Bungou Stray Dogs anime series. For the record, the anime adaptation premiered on Japanese television on April 7, 2016. So, what do the projects entail? Read on!

Bungou Stray Dogs Eighth Anniversary

The official website of Bungou Stray Dogs revealed the 8th anime anniversary project on March 7, 2024. The first batch of the fun project is already being revealed along with the logo for the anniversary celebration project.

The first project “Eighth Anniversary Commemorative Memoirs with Animate International” will begin on April 7, 2024, to April 6, 2025. Throughout that one-year span, the Animate store will reprint the seasonal illustration of Bungou Stray Dogs and sell it as commemorative memorial goods. What makes it different from the first batch is that time-limited items will display the eighth-anniversary logo on it.

Both are members of the “Armed Detective Agency” said to solve incidents that even the military and police won’t touch.
